Treadmill Running Because of Typhoons

Treadmill running is a good habit in maintaining physical fitness when you cannot run outside your home.

 

IMG_20170913_195739
Source: Photo of our old, slightly damaged treadmill in a small area. Photo taken using my Lenovo A5000.

 

This is also a post reminding everyone to be alert for the bad weather conditions since typhoons are normal during these months especially here in the Philippines but these past few days, typhoons are happening in other countries with unexpected places getting flooded already because of the power of nature.

Due to typhoons, runners find ways to continue their training so as not to disrupt their schedules. As a runner, I find treadmill running to be the best alternative in case weather conditions are bad. Instead of letting the treadmill here collect clouds of dust and left to be broken, I might as well use it. The treadmill here is actually an old one with the timer and distance tracker already messed up. Instead of relying on it, I used my cell phone in tracking time.

In order to not get bored while treadmill running, I usually watch the news which usually lasts for 20 to 30 minutes before advertisements are shown. Another method that I do is to pray the Rosary by playing an audio mobile app.  This Holy Rosary mobile app is the one that I use. I also watch YouTube videos that would last for 30 to 45 minutes by searching for workout songs that motivate me to run more. Treadmill running is a good habit in maintaining physical fitness when you cannot run outside your home.

On a side note, I posted here typhoon names used by Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical, and Astronomical Services Administration or PAGASA which is the government agency tasked with providing protection from natural calamities by using scientific methods to safeguard the safety and well-being of Filipinos.

This is an almost one-week late entry for the updates regarding Athletics Team Philippines in the 2017 Southeast Asian Games held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

It was a fateful event for the athletics team when Trente Anthony Beram won two gold medals, one in the 200-metres event and the other in the 300-metres dash in the men’s category.

A silver medal was added when Marco Vilog finished the men’s 800-metre event on a second place.

The third place in the men’s 1,500-metre event was won by Mervin Guarte, taking home a bronze medal for the team.

In the distaff side, it was not time yet for Zion Nelson and Kayla Anise Richardson to grab a place in the top three placings when they failed to get into the final in the women’s 200-metre event.

Both the men and women of the athletic relay team won bronze medals in the 4 X 100M relay event, the men finishing with a time of 39.11 seconds while it was a time of 44.81 seconds for the women’s event.
